The tech industry has a massive shortage of qualified computer programmers—to the degree that some argue a college degree isn’t even necessary to get a top job in the field anymore. The shortage is even worse when you look past the stereotypical coder, a white male. But as tech companies […]

Nice blog you have here! I've also looked around on your website. It seems like an amazing initiative for beginner developers. This may sound a bit silly, but it always makes me happy to see other girls programming. (Partly because it makes me feel less alone haha) So I wanted to thank you for sharing your experiences with the rest of us!
Thanks for reaching out!
I would love to grow my site more in the future, but I only have so much time with my other jobs, etc :(
Anyways, thank you for your kind words — it is always nice hearing from female programmers.
I have been dying to relearn how to code. Haven't done it since college and I forgot most of it. Do you have any highly recommended resources and/techniques that fit into a busy lifestyle? Thank you in advance.
Hi there —
Hmmm … well it depends what you want to do!
For instance, right now I am learning how to build web apps because i’d like to create my own kind of membership site or something that’s more than a blog — you know?
So I’ve been learning Ruby on Rails because there are tons of resources on it, it’s really popular in the job market, and it’s pretty easy to get up and going with it.
What do you want to do, though!? Build a blog, build a web app, a mobile app, etc …
I feel like focusing on a language/skill that fits into your long term goals always helps as far as motivation goes.
(Oh, and I typically spend 20-25 minutes a day learning something new because of my busy schedule with my other job :( )
